For a person who loves travel, I am a little partial to the mountains when compared to beaches. My love affair with mountains have always been never ending.
This trip was to Munnar, in Kerala. Munnar is this sleepy little mountain town in Kerala which is known as 'God's Own Country'. One lovely thing about the mountains here is that they are laden with tea estates and the manicured tea plantations lining all along the way to the actual destination is such a sight to behold. If you are lucky like me, you might even get to stay in one like I did. The curves and bends that are scattered along the roads are nothing short of a roller coaster ride.
The hospitality of the hotel where we stayed was nothing short of splendid and the food there just took the cake. A secret tip for chai lovers, if you ever think of visiting the Western Ghats, make to sure to taste the tea in one of the tea estates. Your mind will be blown, I promise!
We reached late in the night and we were in for a treat. The possi of fireflies taking residence in the valley decided to give us a light show as they started twinkling like stars in the darkness. Not one or two, but hoards and hoards of them. It is one phenomenon, no matter how much you try, can't be put in words. You have to be there to experience it.
